2G n°18 Architecture and Energy
25 €

This issue sets out to inquire into the way in which architectures of energy model and express the world we are living in. It presents and discusses the discourse of energy so central to industrialized societies in highlighting a realm hidden for too long a time from our eyes: the realm where energy is actually produced or where it is in transit. There are strong reasons for presenting such a topic today: negative reasons reflecting the state of the world, a state that, as everybody knows after Rio, is the way it is because of decisions in energy politics and positive reasons related to a recent phenomenon: the rise of a new architecture of energy.

The latter, that is, the architecture of power stations, substations, hydroelectric plants, etc., has gained renewed momentum during the last decade. Several, mostly European, constructions combine a high architectural quality and the desire ''to be seen'' (the two aspects are, of course, linked). Their new visibility recalls the ''golden age'' of electrical architecture from 1900 to the end of the Second World War, and stands as a strong argument against the dominant anonymous and trivial ''non-architecture'' in the energy sphere. Belonging to different realms (solar energy, hydroelectricity, transformers, windpower, etc.), these buildings testify to the change that has occurred. They demonstrate that a balance between the need for energy supply and environmental quality can be found, and that it can take the form of architectures whose aim is to signify, to be authentic architectural landmarks.

 


2G n°52 Sauerbruch Hutton
29,50 €

Sauerbruch Hutton is a practice founded by Matthias Sauerbruch and Louisa Hutton with its main offices in Berlin and London. Active as an independent concern for upwards of twenty years, they have developed a personal language that is essentially characterised by two evident features: the free, sinuous forms of some of their buildings and a bold, emphatic use of colour.

Subtending these obvious characteristics are other no less important ones that are in some way derived from the first ones. We are referring to their wish to create a sense of place, whatever the situation, be it in an urban centre or in a rundown industrial area on the outskirts. Their buildings are gestures on an urban scale that resolve the programme of needs defined by the client and establish a dialogue with the location.

Likewise, it is worth highlighting the strong backing they give to an architectural approach based on sustainability. Sauerbruch Hutton defend and construct a holistic idea of the sustainable that incorporates the aesthetic and sensual pleasure the users of the buildings experience as well as an energy-based analysis of the constructional process or passive and active energy systems. In short, theirs is a defence of sustainability that acts in a resolute way, without artifice or pretentiousness.

The introductory texts at the beginning of the volume, written by Barry Bergdoll and Philip Ursprung, analyse all these issues and provide us with clues to understanding and contextualising the work of Sauerbruch Hutton. Barry Berdoll (currently Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at the MoMA in New York) offers a panoramic vision of their work. Bergdoll plots an historical route that begins with their famous GSW Building in Berlin (1991-1999), an icon of urban acupuncture, sited in the recently configured territory of East Germany, which served as a boost to revitalising the area. His essay contextualises the recent work of the architects presented later in the magazine.

In his essay Philip Ursprung, Professor of Modern and Contemporary Art at Universität Zürich, defends the iconic value of Sauerbruch Hutton's work, not as something negative but the opposite, rather: the ability of the architects to work with what they find in the location, city centre or rundown periphery, and to reveal through their intervention characteristics that would otherwise go unnoticed.

Presented in the central part of the magazine are recent works and projects that illustrate the features and ambitions of Sauerbruch Hutton's oeuvre at different scales, from urban projects to university and corporate buildings. Among the former, we publish the study for the Masséna Bruneseau area (Paris), the urban plan for the entrance to Tilburg (The Netherlands), a proposal for the city of Doha (Qatar), and a housing competition for a rapidly expanding area of the city of Helsinki, which the architects won in 2009.

Among the latter, it is worth highlighting the Federal Environmental Agency (Dessau), a building finished in 2005 that we have revisited and re-photographed in order to show its evolution. Also the building for the Municipal Savings Bank (Oberhausen), the Jessop West building for the University of Sheffield, the recently completed office buildings beside the Rhine in Cologne, and the high-rise building for the KfW Bankengruppe (Frankfurt). The sustainable energy analysis in these works is illustrated by means of numerous schemas and building details. Similarly, we might emphasise the Museum Brandhorst, a museum for a private collection opened in 2009 in the museums area of Munich, which is notable for its facade and spatial concept.

Lastly, and coinciding with the studio's twentieth anniversary, in the nexus section Sauerbruch Hutton offer us a personal reflection on the evolution of their professional practice and their more relevant preoccupations, such as sustainability, art, and the relationship between the physical and the visual world.

2G n°56 Ábalos+Sentkiewicz
29,50 €

Since its foundation in 2006, the work done by Abalos+Sentkiewicz, one of the two offices into which the former Abalos&Herreros studio split, has stood out on the Spanish and international architecture scene for its original synthesis of technical rigour, formal richness and its integrating of architecture, landscape and environment.

2G n°73 Studio Anne Holtrop
29,95 €

Jusqu'à très récemment, Anne Holtrop n'avait construit que quelques petits pavillons et diverses installations entre art et architecture. En dehors des conventions architecturales, et plus proches des installations artistiques, ces pavillons pleins de poésie consistaient en la matérialisation à petite échelle de concepts spatiaux et de recherches sur les matériaux.

Néanmoins, sa carrière a pris une autre ampleur depuis la réalisation de deux projets achevés en 2015 : le musée Fort Vechten à Bunnik (près de Utrecht aux Pays-Bas) et le pavillon du Royaume de Bahrein pour l'exposition universelle de Milan en 2015. Le premier, un musée construit dans l'enceinte de la nouvelle ligne d'eau hollandaise est creusé dans le sol afin de créer des galeries avec des murs en béton foncé s'ouvrant sur une cour anglaise. Le second, le pavillon du Bahrein, est enclos par un grand mur de béton contenant un dédale de galeries, de corridors et de jardins.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Until very recently, Anne Holtrop had only built a few small pavilions and various installations between art and architecture. Outside of conventional architectural circuit, and more related to the art installations, these extremely poetic pavilions consisted of small-scale spatial concepts and personal research on materials.

However, the work of Holtrop took a leap of scale with two projects finished in 2015: the Museum Fort Vechten in Bunnik (near Utrecht, The Netherlands) and the National Pavilion of the Kingdom of Bahrain for the Milan Universal Exhibition of 2015. The former, a museum built within the enclosure of the New Hollandic Water Line fortifications, dug into the ground to create dark concrete walled galleries opening onto a courtyard artificial. The second, the National Pavilion of Bahrain is enclosed by a tall concrete wall that contains an interior maze of galleries, corridors and gardens.

A+T 52 Paradises - Urban Park Strategies
33 €

The fifth volume of the ?Strategy? series is dedicated to urban parks. Through a selection of projects, the magazine identifies and analyses design strategies with which to create accessible, natural paradises for the urban dweller. To study the projects from the perspective of these strategies is to venture into the relationships that emerge between them, and ? as a consequence ? between the projects themselves. Initiated in 2010, the ?Strategy? series defines scalar scopes, evidences disciplinary origins, and composes a grid that overlaps the project to offer a new vision of it.

A+U 566 17:11 European Architecture 1945-1970 Synthesis Of Modernism And Context
31,45 €

In the post-war years of the 20th century, architects from across the European continent were recruited to help rebuild its cities and supply desperately needed housing.
In the United States of the 1950s and '60s, the emerging aesthetic overlapped with the pursuit of technology, but in Europe there was an enduring tendency to see an overlap with traditional aesthetics and to aim for a synthesis between modernist theory and the local architectural context.
Here the magazine looks at exemplary works from this period of rebuilding in Europe, including projects by Alvar Aalto, Cedric Price, Le Corbusier, Alison and Peter Smithson, Sigurd Leweretnz, Aldo van Eyck, Gio Ponti, and more.

29 €

Japanese Magazine Architecture Urbanism

"Passivetown" is a housing project being developed by the YKK Group in Japan since 2015, on a site previously occupied by YKK dormitories. Its goal is to bring next-generation community development to the city of Kurobe by creating a housing complex whose energy needs are met to the greatest extent possible through natural energy sources. These include solar heat, the region's abundant subterranean water, and a seasonal wind that blows in spring and summer. Six apartment blocks have been designed according to passive design principles, and three of these were completed by June 2017. This special issue examines the buildings' passive design strategies in detail.

Aman Iwan. Territoires & populations n°1 : (Se) Construire ensemble
20 €

Aman Iwan s'intéresse aux problématiques de territoires et leurs populations à travers l'architecture, l'urbanisme et la sociologie en tenant compte des enjeux politiques et économiques des territoires concernés. Elle vise, par le biais de la mise en commun de connaissances et de recherches, à explorer, observer et comprendre ces territoires afin de mettre en place des projets concrets répondant à des problématiques locales. Ces travaux se nourrissent de l?expérience, des savoir-faire locaux et des traditions de leurs habitants.

La revue Aman Iwan se revendique en tant que plateforme visant à fédérer les différents territoires ou acteurs que le collectif Aman Iwan souhaite solliciter. De manière générale, la démarche de la revue Aman Iwan se définit en quatre étapes :
- répertorier et diffuser des savoir-faire de techniques et un champ de connaissances;
- sensibiliser le lectorat et le réseau du collectif aux problématiques des territoires concernés ;
- offrir une tribune aux populations locales, aux intervenants extérieurs et aux membres du collectif Aman Iwan pour permettre de matérialiser et médiatiser progressivement un réseau de personnes physiques ;
- initier un dialogue avec les populations locales pour mener des actions concrètes sur ces territoires à travers la mise en place de projets.

La revue Aman Iwan regroupe des essais, des entretiens, des productions graphiques et artistiques, des synthèses de projet, des photographies, de la poésie... Sous format papier, l'objet synthétise l'enrichissement des connaissances et ambitionne la création d'un réseau international à travers l'association de microcosmes. À terme, la volonté du collectif Aman Iwan serait d'envoyer des dépliants et des catalogues synthétiques de la revue sur les territoires concernés, traduits dans les langues locales. Cela permettrait de cristalliser la notion de réciprocité et d'échange pour se construire ensemble."

ar/t/chitecture 1
13 €

Exposer une oeuvre architecturale suscite fréquemment un questionnement légitime sur sa conception, son impact environnemental, ses composants structurels et même sur son évolution dans le temps.

ar/t/chitecture stimule cette interrogation par l'image, sans déclencher un plaidoyer artificiel ou arbitraire sur l'objet présenté. La sensibilité de chacun peut être émoustillée par la beauté d'une construction, par ses formes, ses matériaux ou simplement par l'ingéniosité requise lors de sa création. Les dés sont jetés... Les prémices des projets dévoilés vous transporteront, page après page, vers une critique animée mais qui restera en ''libre-pensée''.

Regardez, ressentez et évaluez la multiplicité architecturale qu'offre notre pays par cette balade illustrée. Une agréable flânerie empreinte de rêveries !

Arch+ 51: Release Architecture Kerez/oehy
22,05 €

This issue was conceived in close collaboration with Sandra Oehy, curator of the Swiss Pavilion at the 15th Architecture Biennale in Venice, and Christian Kerez, the architect of that pavilions Incidental Space. Kerez emphasises the non-referential, the non-predetermined, and the alienation inherent to his project as a means of expanding upon what architecture can be today.
It embodies a new reciprocal relationship between material and the data cloud, one in which the difference between depiction and reality ceases to existwhere a speculative space can be released by architectures autonomy. With contributions by Philip Ursprung, Hito Steyerl, Mario Carpo, and more.
